Jumpin' Jack Flash - Rolling Stones - UKULELE CHORDS

Time to share another ukulele chord sheet for a tune we play in the Nantwich N'Ukes. Jumpin' Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones


It's actually a pretty easy song to play, but it is all in the chords and the rhythm. A couple of elements you will want to take on board.

Before each verse there is a repeated pattern of A in to G. To get the feel of this right you need to be hammering on and off the the E string third fret when you play that chord. Have a listen to our sound cloud at the end (playing it far to fast and you should get the idea). But for beginners you can just play A and G.

The second element is the fast triple strum on the A at the end of the intro chord sequence of A, D, G, A , and in the repeat of that sequence before the final verse. It's basically a couple of very quick triple strums of the A chord, down up down. It's marked as A/// in the chord sheet below.
